I'm starting to worry that I should have started revising way before now and am also very slow to get into the swing of things. I am currently preparing for my AS exams of AQA Applied Business, Edexcel Geography, Edexcel English Language and OCR Philosophy and Ethics. Three of these subjects are very content heavy and essay based, which is why I think I should have began revising earlier. However, between now and the time I have left which is about 5 weeks, how much revision should I be doing a day and should I be worried?

Realistically 2-4 hours a day. I would suggest bumping it a bit higher on days nearing the exams just to cram in more information. But always be efficient.

Now if we're talking how many hours a TSR student should do? They should aim for about 25 hours a day if possible. Otherwise you're going to fail life.

Correction, if it's a TSR student its 0 hours, because all state education is piss.

Thanks, but have I started too late? That's what I'm mainly worried about as I'm aiming for A's and B's.

It is not the quantity but the quality that matters.
you should watch this clip and pay attention at the end when that man talks about revision techniques.

It's never too late. Instead of worrying here on the forum, you should be focusing your energy into revising efficiently and preparing yourself for the exams. Do so at your own pace but be wary of the time you have. Exams are in May and we have 4-5 weeks from now, which is plenty of time supposing you use it well.

:3 .. I am currently in year 10 and I am revising really hard for next year and this year. I would say just read the information. I don't know if this might help but I always bullet point things even if its like one word. This word will then help me write out a sentence. Some people learn by watching videos. I know a boy in my class who revises by recording himself read the revision guide and then listens back to it like a million times < this proves to be highly effective as he actually get really good grades. Maybe mind map, read out-loud and PAST PAPERS. Yes past papers, they repeat the same old questions year after year, you might even find a few repeats when your do them.
